Vapour “Mesmerize Eye Color” | Review

Vapour “Mesmerize Eye Color” | Review

You can never go wrong with the high quality, luxe products from Vapour. The Mesmerize Eye Color does not fall short. Just like the rest of the brand’s products, these creamy eyeshadow sticks are made from natural, organic, and mineral ingredients and are beautiful to use as well as to have on display.

Vapour sells their shadows in two different ranges… Classic and Radiant. The Classic colors are matte, while the Radiant shadows are shimmery. For my first try of these shadows, I decided to go for the most basic color they offer, though there are many beautiful colors available. I selected the matte shade Flash. On Vapour’s website, Flash is accurately described as a mushroom taupe color.

This is a really attractive and comfortable eyeshadow and I’d love to try it in other colors. Have you tried any? Which ones are your favorite? Share in the comments.

Lemongrass Spa’s “Pomegranate Body Polish” | Review

Lemongrass Spa’s “Pomegranate Body Polish” | Review

Winter is upon us. Often along with the beautiful, snowy scenes, and cozy clothes, we get dry skin. Exfoliating and moisturizing are two things that I forget to do very easily. But thank goodness there are products out there that can do both at the same time. I’ve just tried Lemongrass Spa’s Pomegranate Body Polish and was blown away by how well it can multi-task.

For starters, it smells incredible. It’s very fruity and can bring a bit of the tropics to your shower routine on a brisk day. Many sugar and salt scrubs are quite harsh and too abrasive for my skin and I can find them to be kind of painful. That is not the case with this polish. It scrubs and exfoliates with just the right coarseness. I think one reason why its so comfortable to use is because it is packed with so many nourishing oils like Sweet Almond Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, and Coconut oil. It is able to moisturize at the same time that the sugar crystals are exfoliating. I used this first thing in the shower and a good amount of the oils stayed on me for the duration of my shower. When I was out our the shower and dried off, I could have easily gotten by without putting on my moisturizer. I could still smell the pomegranate for a long time on my skin over my Dragon Time moisturizer from Young Living.

This is a scrub I would purchase again and try in all the different scents they have available. In the comments below tell me what your favorite Lemongrass Spa products are. What do I need to try next?

Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques “Deep Sea Masque” | Review

Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques “Deep Sea Masque” | Review

Finding affordable, organic skin care and makeup products is a rare thing. Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques is a rare gem in regards to price and quality.

Clay face masks are one of my favorites because you can really see where the oil and gunk are being pulled out. The Deep Sea Masque from Lauren Brooke comes as a powder to be mixed with any liquids of your choosing and is created with so many nourishing ingredients, it’s impossible to not be intrigued by it. With several kinds of clay and seaweed, as well as a few herbal extracts and peppermint oil, your skin is left clean, smooth, and refreshed.

I find this mask quite enjoyable and recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good mud mask. Tell me about your favorite masks in the comments below.

KL Polish | Review

KL Polish | Review

About a year ago KathleenLights, a very successful beauty youtuber, launched her very own nail polish brand. It always makes me so happy when a youtuber or blogger is able to grow their platform and create things that they love for their viewers or readers to love as well. Kathleen did just this, creating KL Polish.

It is a USA made, cruelty-free, and 5-free (made without formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, camphor, dibutyl phthalate, and toluene) brand. They also qualify as both 7-free (without ethyl tosylamide and xylene) and 9-free (free of parabens and acetone).

Each season a hand full of new colors are released. They create nothing but beautiful and perfectly on trend nail polishes. The formula is perfection! It goes on smooth and is easily built up to be opaque in two coats. The brush shape is wide, so you only need a couple of swipes to fully cover your nail. The matte, rubberized lid make the bottles easy to open.

I can’t find anything to criticise about KL Polish, and I am so happy for Kathleen and her success.

Do you have any of Kathleen’s products? What do you think of them? Tell all about it in the comments.

Moom “Organic Hair Removal Kit With Cucumber For Bikini And Brazilian” | Review

Moom “Organic Hair Removal Kit With Cucumber For Bikini And Brazilian” | Review

Waxing is a great way to keep your body hair free for a longer period of time than just shaving, but without committing to permanent hair removal. Of course, as many of you know, it’s always wise to choose products that are made without toxic ingredients that could harm us. Moom creates beautiful hair removal products that are made out of only a couple of organic ingredients. A relatively recent addition to their store is this hair removal kit made with cucumber, for the sensitive bikini region.

Because the bikini area is so delicate, the cucumber was added to the formula to calm the skin. Agar-agar, green tea, and lemon juice also offer nourishment to your sensitive skin.

My favorite thing about Moom “waxes” is they are water soluble. If you mess up during application, you can just rinse the goop off and start over.

Included in this kit are reusable organic cotton strips and wooden applicators, and a 3oz pot of hair remover

What is your favorite hair removal method? I’d love for you to share in the comments!

Andalou Naturals “Apricot Probiotic Cleansing Milk” | Review

Andalou Naturals “Apricot Probiotic Cleansing Milk” | Review

Gentle cleansers such as milk and oils are all the rage right now. They remove makeup with ease, your skin is left very soft and hydrated, and it can help balance out overly oily and acne prone skin, as well as moisten dry skin. Andalou Naturals Apricot Probiotic Cleansing Milk ticks off all of those points.

First off, it smells great. You can smell the apricot as well as hints of the other fruity ingredients.

The texture is really nice. It feels gentle and nourishing, but not oily. The makeup removal component is pretty good, however, removing water resistant/proof mascara takes a bit more effort than it would with an oil.

Andalou’s Cleansing Milk is made without GMO’s, gluten, or synthetic chemicals. Resveratrol, CoQ10, and their “PhytoCellTec” are used to keep skin hydrated, youthful, and healthy.

I was really keen on this because of the probiotics. I hoped it might help a bit with my acne. I’m not really sure if it made much of a difference there because I have so much internal healing to do before my acne clears up. I also have a bad habit of picking at my acne, which causes it to spread and get worse. It wasn’t designed for acne prone skin so I won’t hold it accountable.Other than that I’m really happy with this cleanser and would recommend it and purchase it again.

Other than that, I’m really happy with this cleanser and would recommend it and purchase it again.

Smells great ✓

Feels great ✓

Doesn’t dry out the skin ✓

Made with safe, ethical ingredients ✓

And it’s in a purple bottle ✓

A good one all the way around.

Tarte Colored Clay CC Eye Primer | Review

Tarte Colored Clay CC Eye Primer | Review

Eyeshadow is a beautiful addition to any makeup look whether you go for neutral shades or bright colors. Or maybe you prefer cream shadows over powder. For many of us, no matter the amount of effort we put into blending our beautiful pigments, it always creases. Every time we close our eyes, there is a nice thick band of clumpy eyeshadow in the crease of our eyelids. Yum. My current go-to product, to avoid that clumpy issue, is Tarte’s Colored Clay CC Eye Primer Stick.

I really like Tarte because they are a trendy brand, keeping up with all of the social media hype and demands, as well as making a strong effort to create wonderful products without all the nasty gunk. They never use parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, triclosan, sodium lauryl sulfate, or gluten. Not to mention, they are also certified cruelty-free, and vegan-friendly.

The Clay CC Eye Primer lives up to all the hype that surrounds Tarte. It keeps shadow in place very well. It also offers an even-toned base and can conceal any concerns of veiny-ness or other discoloration on the lids, and even under the eyes.

The only complaint I have about this product is the cap is really snug. It takes a good amount of effort to get it off, and to snap it back on again.

All in all, this is a good ‘on. For an added bonus I often see it in a lot of Tarte’s sales.

Lemongrass Spa Healing Elements Balm | Review

Lemongrass Spa Healing Elements Balm | Review

My mom and I recently made our first ever order from Lemongrass Spa. They are an affordable organic/natural/non-toxic skin care, hair care, and makeup brand. One thing we had to add to our cart was the Healing Elements Balm. I’ve heard many good things about it both online and from my chiropractor.

It is such a multi purpose product. You can use it anywhere on your body and it improves the health of your skin pretty quickly. With ingredients like coconut oil, apricot oil, jojoba oil, chamomile and lavender essential oils, as well as vanilla for a yummy scent, it’s no wonder that it works so well and is so loved.

Our Success Stories:

A couple of weeks ago I had a pretty deep, raw rug burn on my pinky knuckle. My nerves burned from the tip of my pinky to my elbow. I stupidly tried straight, undiluted lavender oil on my boo-boo. That was too harsh and made the burning worse. I added a touch of The Honest Co. Healing Balm and did not find any relief. Next, I gave Healing Elements a try. I dabbed a tiny scoop (it came with a little spatula for easy, less messy application) on my raw knuckle, topped it off with a band-aid and found instant relief from the pain. I carried on with that combo a couple of times a day for about a week until my knuckle scabbed over.

Mom has been using it as a night time moisturizer and we both agree that her eyes look less puffy and overall, her skin looks smoother. We have been trying to find a Vaseline replacement for her lips. This didn’t quite match up. She said it absorbed too quickly. She likes the barrier that the Vaseline provides. Do you know of any alternatives for her? Let us know in the comments.

We have been loving this and plan to keep our cupboards stocked with it at all times. It’s such a great multi purpose product that everyone should have on hand!

What are your favorites from Lemongrass Spa? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments.

Vapour Beauty Siren Lipstick | Review

Vapour Beauty Siren Lipstick | Review

Vapour Beauty makes beauty products from non-toxic, natural, organic and mineral ingredients. All of their products are a beautiful quality inside beautiful packaging. On their website, there is a list of dupes where you can find clean replacements for your favorite cult products. Their Lipstick, in the color Purr, is a dupe for Nars’ Lipstick in the color Sex Machine. I’ve had heart eyes for Nars’ Sex Machine for quite a while but did not want the less than desirable ingredients. I’m so glad I found Vapour’s Purr. It’s so beautiful!

The lipstick is a perfect natural pink shade that has great pigmentation. It has a demi-matte/satin finish and is comfortable and hydrating without feeling slippery or oily.

With out a doubt, I would purchase more shades!

What are your favorite Vapour products? Do you know of any must have non-toxic lippies? Let us know in the comments.

Tarte Tartelette Tease Clay Palette | Review

Tarte Tartelette Tease Clay Palette | Review

Tarte is a popular mainstream brand in the makeup addict community. They create beautiful products with natural ingredients. Parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, triclosan, synthetic fragrances, and gluten are never used in any of their products. As an added bonus, Tarte is also a cruelty-free company.

The Tartelette Tease Clay Palette, a sextet of pinky-neutral eyeshadows has the most beautiful formula.  Each shadow is high in pigmentation, very easy to work with and blend, and has a luxe buttery texture.

For me, someone who doesn’t wear a lot of eyeshadow, this is a perfect palette. It gives me a couple of different color combinations to work with. For minimal eye shadow days, I’ll use the lighter shades as an inner corner highlight, or the darker shades as a soft eyeliner. This baby Tartelette Palette is compact, minimal, yet diverse. It’s impossible not to love it.

In the comments, tell me your favorite Tarte products, and tell me about your other favorite non-toxic eyeshadows.

The Honest Co. Bubble Bath | Review

The Honest Co. Bubble Bath | Review

Some times all you need to relax is toasty soak in the tub. I always enjoy some essential oil scented salts in my bath, and adding bubbles makes it even better. A lot of organic bath products are quite pricey. I love getting my bath and body supplies from The Honest Co. because they are inexpensive yet I know they will be made from safe ingredients and they will smell divine.

Honest’s Bubble Bath comes in four scents: Sweet orange Vanilla, Dreamy Lavender, Apricot Kiss, and Fragrance-Free. I have tried each of these scents in many of their body care products and I can report that they are all lovely.

For the purpose of a relaxing bath, I selected Dreamy Lavender for my bubbles. It’s awesome. It smells wonderful, It feels wonderful, and the bubbles last for a decent amount of time. If I had a complaint, it would be that the bottle isn’t big enough. If Honest had an option to buy a larger size, I would probably order that one next time.

What are your bath and/or relaxation must haves? Please share with everyone in the comments below.
